Blood From A Clone

(Harrison)

They say they like it, but, now in the market it
May not go well as it's too laid back.
You need some oomph-papa, nothing like Frank Zappa
And not New Wave they don't play that crap

Try beating your head on a brick wall
Hard like a stone
Don't have time for the music
They want the blood from a clone

I hear a clock ticking
I feel the nitpicking
I almost quit kicking at the wall
There seems a confusion, under the illusion
That they know what will suit you all

Beating my head on a brick wall
Hard like a stone
Ain't have time for the music
They want the blood from a clone

There is no sense to it
Pure pounds and pence to it
They're so intense too makes me amazed
Don't want no music but, they're making you sick with
Some awful noises that may get played

By beating their heads on a brick wall
Hard like a stone
Ain't no messing 'round with music
Give them the blood from a clone

Where will it all lead us
I thought we had freed us
From the mundane seems I'm wrong again
Could be they lack roots, they're still wearing
jack boots they're
Marching somewhere in the pouring rain

Beating my head on a brick wall
Hard like a stone
Don't have time for the music
They want the blood from a clone.

Unconciousness Rules

(Harrison)

You dance at the discoteque
That's why you look such a wreck
Your face is pale you look drawn
Your clothes are dirty and torn
You've got that look in your eyes that says
You're half alive and you're lost inside
Meanwhile you're back in your cage
Ego'd out on the stage
Where the unconciousness rules

You've got yourself in a bind
You don't know how to unwind
You're senses unsatisfied
Take you along on a ride
You've got a way and a stance that says
You'll dance the pants off of everyone
Then you go back on the floor
You got to get through the door
Where the unconciousness rules.

You've lost a screw in your head
It shows the way you're led
Blind leading the blind
Nothing can stand in your way
You're living day after day
Where the unconciousness rules.

Life Itself

(Harrison)

You are the One
You are my love
You send the rain and bring the sun
You stand alone and speak the truth
You are the breath of life itself, oh yes you are
You are the One

You're in my dream
I hold you there in high esteem
I need you more each step I take
You are the love in life itself, oh yes you are
You are the One

You are the one that I'd die for
And you're all that is real
You are the essence of that which
We taste, touch and feel

You are the One
No matter what
You are the real love that I've got
You are my friend and when life's through
You are the light in death itself, oh yes you are
You are the One

They call you Christ, Visnu, Buddha, Jehova, Our Lord
You are Govinda, Bismillah, Creator of All

You are the One
No matter what
You are the real love that I've got
You are my friend and when life's through
You are the ligt in death itself, oh yes you are
You are the One

You are my love
You send the rain and bring the sun
You stand alone and speak the truth
You are the breath of life itself, oh yes you are
The breath of life itself, oh yes you are

All Those Years Ago

(Harrison)

I'm shouting all about love
While they treated you like a dog
When you were the one who had made it so clear
All those years ago.

I'm talking all about how to give
They don't act with much honesty
But you point the way to the truth when you say
All you need is love.

Living with good and bad
I always looked up to you
Now we're left cold and sad
By someone the devil's best friend
Someone who offended all.

We're living in a bad dream
They've forgotten all about mankind
and you were the one they backed up to the wall
All those years ago
You were the one who Imagined it all
All those years ago.

Deep in the darkest night
I send out a prayer to you
Now in the world of light
Where the spirit free of the lies
And all else that we despised

They've forgotten all about God
He's the only reason we exist
Yet you were the one that they said was so wierd
All those years ago
You said it all though not many had ears
All those years ago
You had control of our smiles and our tears
All those years ago

Baltimore Oriole

(Lyrics by Paul Francis Webster, Music by Hoagy Carmichael)

Baltimore Oriole
Took one look at that mercury, forty below
No life for a lady
To be draggin' her feathers around in the snow
Leaving me blue, off she flew
To the Tangipaho-down Louisiana
Where a two-tiin' Jaybird
Met the divine Miss O

I'd like to ruffle his plumage
That Baltimore Oriole
Messed around with that big guy
Till he singed her wings
Forgivin' is easy-it's a woman like, now and then
Could happen to thing
Send her back home
Home ain't home without her warbling
How she can sing
Make a lonely man happy, Baltimore Oriole
Come down from that bough
Fly to your daddy now.

Teardrops

(Harrison)

Teardrops-I've had my share of cring buckets full of
Teardrops-so hard to take-I got a soaking with those
Teardrops-and it feels like I have taken over from the rain.

In the heart of the lonely man
In and out of love more often than most others can
He walks the streets like the losers in some lovers game
He talks so sweet but the news is always much the same.

Teardrops-I've had my share of crying buckets full of
Teardrops-so hard to take-I got a soaking with those
Teardrops-and it feels like I have taken over from the rain.

In the eyes of the lonely one
Everything is cold and hopeless that he looks upon
He needs a friend a lover who can comfort him
His deeds offend he knows that he has brought on him.

Teardrops-I've had my share of cring buckets full of
Teardrops-so hard to take-I got a soaking with those
Teardrops-and it feels like I have taken over from the rain.

That Which I Have Lost

(Harrison)

He is fighting the forces of darkness limitation
Falsehood and mortality which bar him
The way back into the higher world
While his whole being is bewildered
He does not know-no law of action
Taking refuge inside himself and he's saying

I need someone to show me
Illumine my conciousness
Remove the dark from in me
And give me that which I have lost

As all had seemed lost a light from Heaven breaking
A flash-inward illumination
Enriched his life more than any words can tell
He stood there, life renewed fresh as rain
Scales were falling from his eyes again
The bolts of his prison opening-he's saying

I found someone who showed me
Illumined my conciousness
Removed the dark from in me
And given me that which I had lost

You people don't have time to listen to him
You're too busy fighting revolutions
That keep you back down in the lower world
Your mirrors of understanding they need cleansing
Polish away the dust of desire
Before pure light will reflect in them

You need someone to show you
Illumine you conciousness
Remove the dark from in you
And give you that which you have lost

Writing's on the Wall

(Harrison)

The writing's on the wall brother
Your life is in your hands
It's up to you to see the writing's on the wall.

It looks you in the eye mister
It's time we stand up tall
Go see and understand the writing's on the wall.

Strange we hold on to things that have no grace or power
While death holds on to us much more with every passing hour
And all the time you thought it would last
Your life, your friends would always be
'Till they're drunk away or shot away or die away from you.

There's nothing that you need sister
The Lord is in you all
Life is designed to see the writing's on the wall.

Be careful going home sister
Be watchful down that road
You've got a lot of love sister
More to grow.

The writing's on the wall brothers
Your life is in your hands
It's up to you to see the writing's on the wall
I hope that you may see the writing's on the wall

Hong Kong Blues

(Hoagy Carmichael)

It's the story of a very unfortunate coloured man
Who got arrested down in old Hong Kong
He got twenty years privilege taken away from him
When he kicked old Buddha's gong

And now he's poppin' the piano just to raise the price
Of a ticket to the land of the free
Well, he says his home's in 'Frisco where they send the rice
But it's really in Tennessee

That's why he says
I need someone to love me
Need somebody to carry me home to San Francisco
And bury my body there
I need someone to lend me a fifty-dollar bill and then
I'll leave Hong Kong far behind me
For happiness once again

Won't somebody believe
I've a yen to see that Bay again
Everytime I try to leave
Sweet opium won't let me fly away
I need someone to love me
Need somebody to carry me home to San Francisco
And bury my body there

That's the story of a very unfortunate coloured man
Who got arrested down in old Hong Kong
He got twenty years privilege taken away from him
When he kicked old Buddha's gong.

Save the World

(Harrison)

We've got to save the world
Someone else may want to use it
So far we've seen
This planet's rape, how we've abused it
We've go to save the world

The Russians have the biggest share
With their long fingers everywhere
And now they've bombs in outer space
With laser beams and atomic waste

Rain forests chopped for paper towels
One acre gone in every hour
Our birds and wildlife all destroyed
To keep some millionaires employed

We've got to save the whale
Greenpeace they've tried to diffuse it
But dog food salesmen
Persist unkindly to harpoon it
We've got to save the world

The armament consortium
They're selling us plutonium
Now you can make your own H-bomb
Right in the kitchen with your mom

The nuclear power that costs you more
Than anything you've known before
The half-wit's answer to a need
For cancer, death, destruction, greed

We've got to save the world
Someone's children they may need it
So far we've seen
The big business of extinction bleed it
We've got to save the world

We're at the mercy of so few
With evil hearts determined to
Reduce this planet into hell
Then find a buyer and make quick sale

To end up on a happy note
Like trying to make concrete float
Is very simple knowing that
God in your heart lives

We've got to save the world
Someone else may want to use it
It's time you knew
How close we've comeWe're gonna lose it-We gotta save, we gotta save
We gotta save the world.
